Palestinians fired a rocket from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel, but the military has reported no casualties from the attack.

An army statement said that the rocket hit open ground in the border region late Wednesday night. There was no report of Israel returning fire.

On August 22, Israel pounded Gaza with aircraft and tank fire after a rocket fired from the coastal strip hit the southern Israeli town of Sderot without causing any injuries.

Palestinian medical officials said four people were wounded during the dozens of retaliatory raids, which targeted bases of Hamas’s military wing, the Ezzedine Al-Qassam Brigades, as well as of two smaller militant groups.

On July 2, Israeli air raids hit four sites in Gaza after a rocket struck a building in Sderot. There were no casualties in either attack.
